The best part? This player won big on their 4th day on the Jackpocket app. Just goes to show - you never know when luck will strike.⚡️
The winner and her husband just celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary in early May. Her present to her husband was “as much Jackpocket as he wanted!” He then got her started with her own Jackpocket app account and four days later she won $1,000,000 on a Quick Pick ticket.
He told Jackpocket, “I joke with her all the time that we won the lottery. This time we really did.”
This couple says their 34th anniversary “gift” will help them in retirement.
